i bought a new albion privateer and misread their geo chart so it's just too big.
need smaller, 50-53htt. prefer sloping top tube with shorter seattube but i'll consider anything.
canti brakes or long (mid) reach ok
1 1/8 straight ht
no discs
should clear 32ish tires
mixte frames ok.
in fact, a buena vista or starling would be awesome


alternatively, i'd trade you straight up for mine. it's a size 54 so 56htt with minimal miles on it. never fit right so hardly any use.

Material? I have a new Canadian made Rocky Mountain AL frameset in the attic that might work fit-wise.

I couldn't find a geo chart for this year Whistler 50. Guessing somewhere between 2005 and 2010. Takes discs or cantis, most years are one or the other. This is a 13.5", pretty sure the smallest size they made. I measure the ETT at about 53.5 cm. Perhaps contact RM with the pic and they can get you geo. Fork shown was from another frame and canti only. Need to check the box this was in to see if there's a disc fork in it.

Any interest in a 50cm 26" canti Surly Long Haul Trucker?
Can sell as frameset or complete with Shimano 9 speed or anywhere in between.
